Brighton MP Caroline Lucas has shared her delight at the news Royal Sussex County Hospital will receive a £400m investment.
She said: "This is fantastic news for the city and a real success for the cross-party community campaign.
"Brighton and Hove deserves a 21st century hospital and a strong NHS that puts the public first. We've worked so hard for this essential redevelopment and I will be keeping up the pressure to ensure that there are no more unnecessary delays from the Treasury as the project goes forward."
